Szczebel (976 m above sea level), due to its impressive silhouette and classic "island character", is considered one of the most beautiful peaks of the Beskid Wyspowy. Gentle foothills, made of slate complexes, suddenly turn into steep slopes (slope up to 40 degrees), built on Magura sandstones. The short, latitudinal ridge of Szczebel is sharp and there are spectacular rock formations, mainly under the peak and on the eastern shoulder.

They take the form of pulpits, built of Magura sandstone, 2–5 m high (maximum, on the eastern arm of Szczebel - 15 m). Some rocks have signs and inscriptions carved into them, which until the 1930s were considered the marks of treasure hunters. On the northern arm there is a crevice cave known already in the 19th century - Zimna Dziura. To the south, through the gentle shoulder of Mała Góra (884 m above sea level) and the Glisne Pass, it connects with the Luboń Wielki massif.

The peak has no views, and from the black trail there are only narrow but spectacular views of the Raba valley and its surroundings due to the significant elevation gain. At the top there is a field altar and a boulder with a plaque commemorating the trips of Fr. Karol Wojtyła from 1953 and 1955, as well as a cross at the place of the death of Fr. Józef Stańko, vice-rector of the Krakow Theological Seminary (1968). The rung is located on the Papal Trail.
